Re: Ideapad 130 amd can't install ubuntu

This is odd.  I have an Ideapad 130-15ast that have set up to dual boot Windows 10 and Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon, which is based on Ubuntu, and I have had no problem installing or running it.  I have the exact same setup on another laptop by a different manufacturer.  The problem I am trying to solve is that on the Ideapad, while in Linux Mint it will not print a test page nor will it print a pdf from the Chrome PDF viewer (sends it to the printer,  says print is complete, but nothing actually prints).  The two computers are setup exactly the same, except the Ideapad has all documents directed to a separate NTFS  partition that is shared between the Windows and Linux OSs.
